Wrapping Up

I've completed what I wanted to get done--caught 100 of one of the Tarasques, silvered one of the others, and saved up 100 million coins. I spent the final day burning through over 20 days of time potion, making lacquer and catching salamanders to make more lacquer, and occasionally pausing to go after Oni Bangles to make Orichalcum.

When I'd caught 50 of the Swamp Tarasques, I turned my attention to cash--I made a few more lacquer to go after Storsie, to push me that last few million to get 100. (I was hoping the game would last long enough to go after 1 billion, but alas, it was not to be.)

Then I burned through over 200 wishing coins in Nanjing, getting the 500 coin achievement. I leave off with 3 wishing achievements unfinished, and the …

The closing of a great game...



There are twenty new quests, a new trap, new recipes, and new achievements. If people would like more Banknotes, there is also a 75% off Banknotes and Coins sale, and the limit of videos watched that receive Banknotes has been increased as high as possible. If you missed out on a birthday cake you can also now purchase one.


Hi guys,

As you have read Here Be Monsters is coming to an end. It was a tough decision that the company had to make, but it is the right one. A lot of people here will be upset by the news, having spent a lot of time playing the game and living in this fantastical world that was created. There really aren’t other games out there like Here Be Monsters, which has this depth of story and a vast world where people could expl…

Prepping For New Quests

With new Quests coming after a loooong break, most of us haven't been spending time getting ready. While we don't know exactly what we'll need, we know there'll be a new trap and new monsters (the teaser pics are from Tarascon, so we can predit it'll be one or more of the tarasque dragons, which are only trappable there and at Cap de Nice).

The three tarasques, Swamp, Dirt, and Shadow, are worth a LOT of money to catch... so the trap is going to be very expensive to build, and the bait will probably involve multiple kinds of loot. If you haven't caught up with all the quests yet, expect to ignore these until you have. (Don't worry, they'll still be around later, and by then, people will have worked the bugs out and come up with the best way…

The Fastest Lepidopterist

With the new achievement for butterfly collecting, many folk will be visiting places with several kinds of butterflies and rounding up everything they can find, over and over, until either they get tired of clicking or run out of Watermelon Juice. If you want to do so efficiently—going to the fewest number of places, and within those options, the larger places that let you zoom out for easy butterfly-catching—here’s a guide to where they can be found with the fewest overlaps.

Shi Shi

In the In Case of Emergency quest, Leona tells your folk that legend has it that the Shi Shi (Lion Statues) were once alive, and in Better Never Than Late Zhong Kui brings them back to life and has them under his command - all the Lion Statues have come to life!


I've had a little trip round China and MOST of the Shi Shi are missing! They have disappeared from:

  • Chaohu Lake
  • Changzhi
  • Daliangzihe Forest
  • Lancang River
  • Libo Karst
  • Qinghai Lake
  • Wuwei
  • Zhongnan Mountain
  • Akakura Shrine


But they are still there at:

  • Ganhe River
  • Nanjing
  • Nanyue
  • Tai Shan


Have you spotted any more missing Shi Shi?

I really can't wait for the next quests, I hope we get to start trapping Yin Shishi and Yang Shishi soon , as they are made of Stone and Jade, I wonder what their baits will be?

Going for Gold

I now have my gold trophy for 51 monsters (so not included here)

This table is for me to work out how much bait I need to make to get gold trophies for all monsters O M G

18/03/2015 The end is in sight (of making baits at least, I still have A LOT of trapping to do!)

UPDATE: Golded all the monsters except the Tarasques. Part of me didn't want to trap any Tarasques so I could have all gold, but I wanted to finish the quests more. So sad it's ending......

I made it because SOMEBODY in our house threw away my paper notes....

Lancashire Hotpot

In the latest release Lancashire Hotpot was added as a recipe and if you look closely at the Almanac you will see a lovely tribute to star of Coronation Street, Betty Driver.

If you are not familiar with Coronation Street, Betty was the barmaid whose Lancashire Hotpot was famous.

Betty died in 2011 and her portrait hangs in the Rovers Return pub and can still be seen in the soap. I love it that the devs are Corrie fans!

Perhaps we can expect Weatherfield to appear on the map next!

July 16, 2014 Game Update


We had a big update yesterday with a ton of new items and a new questline called Become the Chef of Steel! As always, it ends with a special achievement and a spectacular coveted trophy as a decorative prize.

The devs added a new crop, Black Pepper, but it doesn't look like we need it in anything yet. There are currently no recipes or quests that require this item, so for now players are just growing it to add to a stockpile for the future.

We saw the release of a new monster - the Fenghuang. This monster needs the Da Vinci Rockets trap and a handful of new alchemy baits based off the new Morning Dew item.

In addition, we saw a brand new 'fish', the Abalone snail! There are a handful of new recipes with the abalone that are required for the n…

The Great Yellow Butterfly Hunt

As I've just used up all my Rainbow Lures catching sharks, I thought I'd do a little experiment to try and find a good place to catch Danube Clouded Yellow butterflies. Hortobagy Puszta is the but I've never had much luck catching them there. Dacian Fortresses, Mount Arlan, Sandomierz Valley and Zengo are all mentioned in the comments on the Danube Clouded Yellow page, so I caught 40 total butterflies at each location and here are my results:

Bait + Trap Values

The question came up, on the forums, of how a trap with bars, combined with a bait of bars, had a trap rate of only . The explanation was offered that the bars showing were "bars below 8," and a rating of -1 and -2 would of course combine to -3, or 5 bars.

That's a reasonable enough explanation--except it's not how they all work. I gathered some numbers. A trap of 8 bars, with a bait of 6 bars, can have a trap rate of 6 to 8, depending on... factors that players can't see. Location can make a difference, but does not usually. In some cases, different bait rates give the exact same total trapping chance.

June 11 Update: Warrior Monsters

This is mostly a catchall post for noting what's been changed so we can edit the wiki as we have time to catch up.

3 new traps: Genin Trap, Jounin Trap, Chuunin Trap, which look like updated versions of the Genin. Jounin seems to be the most advanced, but that's not quite clear yet. Bunch of parts for those, most of which are still secret because nobody's gotten there yet.

7 monsters released: Centaur Scout, Centaur Archer, Centaur Warrior; Aurora Valkyrie, Storm Valkyrie; Baykok Warrior, Baykok Chief. They probably all need stats and flavor text updated along with baits & traps added; the Scout changed a lot from the unreleased version.

Baits for all those. Lots of baits; some ingredients changed on existing foods. New crop item: Eggplant. (…

iPad Basics


Since the iPad release going world-wide last week, we've had a tons of questions. We thought it might be about time to write up a how-to guide that explains a few of the basics. You can find the iPad FAQs on the HBM Forum, : The AMAZING iPad FAQs

May 27, 2014 Update

The developers released an update to the game today that mainly deals with minor visual changes, most notably the Shop purchasing screen appearance. Aside from this change, the devs have moved the A true Artisan Achievement and Master of all Achievement out of the "Homestead" section in the Almanac and made them secret achievements.


The devs have added several layers of categories to the shop. Without commenting on their ease of use, all the items have been dropped into these subcategories with additional subcategories. I think the intention was to allow us to locate items easier for purchasing, but there is a strain for players trying to sell items and being unable to find them.

Additionally, they have removed the information box about item…

Preparing for the Next Quest

Sometime soon, there'll be another quest line. We don't even have any hints about it--no idea whether it's likely to be a continuation of the Nanjing lines, focused on Du Ping or maybe the Chef of Steel contest, or some new European quest, or maybe the opening of another major city. But I'm caught up on replacing the supplies I wore down during the last quests, and I did some work on my Trapping Achievements and trophy-hunting. I want to be prepared for the next quest, not caught off-guard like the last one (12 red hair! Eeep!), so now that I have a bit of downtime, I'm planning ahead.

I have the Dragonscale Backpack, and a Barn#Fabulous Barn, so I have plenty of space to store everything I want. If I didn't have those, I'd make a more pare…

More new templates and buildings

We've had a big batch of new buildings released with the May 7th update and realized the way we were displaying them needed a little work. So to bring things up to speed with the rest of the wiki, we created a special template that allows us to display building materials needed for construction. We were able to use the Crafting box as a sample, but here is the brand new Homestead Building template.


The template page I linked above has some more details on how it works if you're interested in seeing it in action, but it should work the same way as our Crafting template. The main difference is that you construct buildings right on your homestead instead of putting them together in a workshop.

How Sweet Is That Cake?

I decided to craft a Wedding Cake, mostly to see how difficult it would be, and partially because they're worth over 6000 . Hey, new fast money-making gimmick! (Probably not. It takes too many backpack slots for low-level players, and takes too long to bother for everyone else. The newest make-money-fast trick is mining for Jade or Cinnabar.) So, without having to jump between almanac listings or wiki pages, here's the breakdown for Wedding Cake:

5 Strawberry Fondant

  • 2 Sugar = 10 Sugarcane
  • 1 Water
  • 5 Strawberries

5 Lemon Cake (made in batches of 2)

  • 1 Cow's Milk

Memories of Du Ping - April 23rd update


We had a big update on April 23rd that introduced two new monsters, a new homestead building, new trap, new loot, and two brand new quest lines in the Nanjing series! In addition to all the new items, we saw a handful of changes to older items like the pricing of Red Cabbage and the recipe yield for some of the paint.


The new quest lines, Engineering Excellence Quest Line and Ghosts of the Past Quest Line, begin after The Oni Way to Find Out is to Try. You must help Bashak prepare to build the brand new Razzle Dazzler trap and save Du Ping.

The new monsters Jorogumo and Baldanders can be trapped with the new trap. The Jorogumo drops an interesting loot item called Silken Cocoons. You can take these to your Homestead and place them on the gro…

I was looking at the items needed to get the Artisan of the Elements Achievement and I noticed that none of the five items listed had the crafting time listed.  Where you craft it, what you can use it for and the sell price are all listed...but the time it takes to craft items is not.  I checked some other items and some of them had the crafting time listed, but in the text, not in the information box that surrounds the item image.  Why not put that information in the info along with the sell price and other stats?  Along with the quantity each recipe makes, too...that information is not in the info box either, and the quantity made in each batch doesn't seem to be listed even in the text for a bunch of crafting items.

Hard to make useful friends

Why do so few HBM players list their homestead in their speech bubble?  It's not possible to know if you want to send a friend request to someone if you don't know where their homestead is, because free travel is the most important thing a HBM friend provides.  Even if they never come and fertilize, or if they're not on often and so rarely reply to requests, a useful travel spot is a useful travel spot.

I understand if it's someone with a FULL friend list who wants to avoid new requests, but other than that, shouldn't EVERYONE have their homestead location listed in their Folk profile?

Making Monster Bait

Now all the excitement of the Suddenly, Ninjas! quest is over I need something to keep me occupied so I've set myself the task of making 20 of each of the top bait for each monster that is currently trappable so I'm all set for all eventualities when the next quest is released.

I'm working on a list of which top baits are made in the campfire, lab or workshop so that I've got them all working busily.

Top monster baits made in the campfire:

  • Ahool - Durian Bucket
  • Bird of Ares - Roast Crab
  • Blonde Mermaid - Fish and Chips
  • Blonde Selkie - Pan Fried Bass
  • Chimera - Giant Chicken Skewer
  • Dandelion Pixie - Dandelion Tea
  • Drop Bear - Vegemite Sandwich
  • Forest Wyvern - Roast Beef
  • Ginger Peluda - Gingerbread Man
  • Gnome - Roast Potatoes
  • Green Goblin - Roast Squash
  • Gul T…

Baking A Bakers Brioche

Progress: 15/18

Just Baked: Pear Pie

Up Next: Corn Bread -waiting on corn to grow-

Whats left: Corn Bread & Spice Cakes

Dreading: Spice Cakes.

Not only do Spice Cakes call for Cinnamon that I don't have the room to have stored, but they also call for Raisins which can only be obtained from Purple Grapes after 18 hours.

What made this Achievement easy in the long run? Stock piling up on Pastry, and having multiple different kinds of fruit trees on my homestead.

What made it difficult?  The fact that I am incredibly impatient.

We have a big update that carries on the Nanjing quest series!! In addition to the new quests, we have a special treasure hunt for the Chinese New Year. The New Year items will only be available for a limited time, to see the details you can check out the Red Envelope page.

We start the new quest line with Recap with Bashak and can get the Suddenly, Ninjas! Achievement.

The new Big Bang Trap will help us trap the Oni monster and get the Oni Bangle loot item. There are a number of new items surrounding this new monster and building the trap …

Tables! Tables! Tables!

I decided it would be nice to be able to focus on crafting a few certain food items near yet under my max energy, so I decided it would be nice to have a table to reference... So, a bit of searching finds me the Energy page has just such a table, but that it's out of date. A few items are missing, and others have altered details. I went ahead and added/adjusted the items I currently have in my inventory, but it's a pretty darned big table. Feel free to join in, if you also find such a thing useful.

Roc Around the Cloc - Game Update - January 14, 2014

You’ll want to make room in your Backpacks (and stomachs) for our new Recipes and Craftables. There’s a wide range on offer, from Shark's Fin Soup to a brand new Dinner Table to eat it on. So get filling up your Almanac now!

Hook, Line & Sinker - Jan 2, 2014 Update



Davey the Fisherman’s quests have been expanded, and he’s ready to share some of his mysterious past with you — prepare for a chilling tale of piracy on the high seas, with plenty of twists and turns. This contains 15 new quests for you to tackle, and will start you off on the mystery of Davey and his pirate crew… These quests expand upon the existing Davey storyline, and are available to all players, so older players who’ve met Davey before may find the start of the questline a little familiar.


Davey’s quests will lead you to a brand new Fishing Rod, the Shockwave Rod! Stronger than the Gnomish Rod, this will make a fearsome addition to your arsenal.

You can read more about it here on the HBM Forum here: news from HBM


There are a few returni…

Tricky, tricky..

I discovered a quick trick that we probably shouldn't use, but I did anyway.

Works a treat, as long as the page doesn't get moved.

New Davey quest chain

After completing The Blue Robin Tweets, I got a new quest from Davey, A Reel Rod. However, the line I got was different than the one attached to that quest, so perhaps it is old?

Next I received the quest Fish eat fish world and now I'm on to Fishy fun... I'll start adding there.

December 2013 Notes from Producer Michael

Happy Frost Fayre to all Trappers!

First up, thank you to everyone who has played Here Be Monsters this year, and especially those who have supported us by making any purchase. We appreciate it and without you we wouldn’t be able to continue building this game we love.

The team will mostly be on holidays next week, and before we go I wanted to write up my last Producer’s Notes for the year and fill you in on what we’ve been up to, and what’s coming next!

2013 has been a year full of hard work, hard changes and getting HBM ready for more players. Again, thank you to everyone who has played this year, provided feedback (even when it was in ALL CAPS), helped other Trappers out and especially been patient with changes to the game and long waits f…
